Amazing creamy steak enchiladas dinner will make a perfect weekend dinner in about 40 minutes. Steak Enchiladas made with thinly sliced steak, sauteed with onions and peppers, and topped with delicious jalapeno cilantro cream sauce and lots of cheese!
I LOVE Enchiladas. There is something about juicy meat and cheese wrapped in a tortilla and baked with sauce and more cheese!! I make my Chicken Enchiladas all the time but I wanted to make something different with them last time.
I was thinking of beef, using ground beef, at first but then I saw this perfect looking steak at the store and it called for me. You know that when ingredients call for you…you listen!
It was right! It wanted to be in my enchiladas and it turned out amazing.

This Jalapeno Cilantro Cream Sauce is wonderful too. It would go very well with other dishes too. First of all, it would be great with some white chicken enchiladas. Second, it would be nice over grilled chicken breast and even pasta.

Great recipe plenty of flavor my family goobled the entire dish up that was supposed to last two days
Haha well, you will have to make more! 😉
This is excellent! I really like the jalapeño sauce. I was afraid it would be way too spicy with 2 large jalapeños. It wasn’t at all. It was actually quite mild. And the steak and veggies part was very well flavored also. Thanks for sharing the recipe!! We will have this again!!
DELICIOUS! I did not take the seeds out of the jalapeños because our family likes things hot and it wasn’t hot at all , excellent recipe! Thank you !!
I am so glad you liked it, Angie!
Made this for Cinco de Mayo and it turned out fantastic! Thank you for this recipe!
I am so glad you liked them, Karen! Thanks for taking the time to let me know!
Any guess on calories for one of the enchiladas. Have made them twice now – quite yummy.
Thank you, John! I am so glad you like them! I have updated the nutrition facts for this through my recipe maker and you can snow see that by scrolling up. They are about 232 for each enchilada.

Candice, I am so happy you liked it!
I am making these tonight! Already decided and it’s only 7:15 a.m. I made slow cooker steak and cheeses a couple days ago and have left over chuck roast shredded up. I hope that will work just fine. Your pictures really are amazing.

Good sauce, but not enough of it. Would double it next time and add more cheese.
Thank you! Yes, if you like it sauce, definitely double it 🙂
(I enjoy extra sauce myself from time to time!)

Hi – this recipe looks amazing – I was wondering if it could be frozen and then go from freezer to oven
You may be able to freeze it without the sauce and just add the sauce later. Cream based sauce doesn’t always behave when frozen and defrosted and might separate on you. Also, depending on the steak, it might be overcooked when reheating since it was cooked already before freezing. You can always give it a try, I’d definitely leave the sauce off until reheating thought 🙂
